In this video, Greg Paulsen, the Director of Application Engineering at Xometry (also known as Xometry Greg), shares wisdom about the 3 major topics you need to discuss with your molder. This is the sequel video to 3 Essential Injection Molding Principles.

Mastering these topics are as easy as spelling P-E-G, which stands for parting, ejection, and gating. These injection molding sub-processes will help you understand how you can achieve parts that separate from the mold cleanly, are free from filling imbalances, and look the way you want.

Great designs are all about communication as you move from design to prototyping to injection molding production, so watch this video to get started with the right PEG forward!
